  • "Lovely cottage holiday home."

    Everything you need for a holiday. Tastefully decorated. Clean and comfortable. Plenty of kitchen appliances. Cottage soon warmed up with the heating . Great location. Great that they excepted a pet. Stairs maybe a little steep for young children or the elderly but was fine for us.

    Thank you so much for your kind comments. We do try very hard to provide a luxurious practical experience for our guests. Property Owner

    ... parking a bit tricky if you have decent sized car but a car park close by so no real issue, would definitely stay again. Thanks Rob.

    This is the second time we have stayed here but this last time we found the parking very bad as the 2 bays outside the property were full we phoned the owners and were told first there first served and there was a car park round the corner it cost around £9 a day to park there and found this ridiculous after paying for the accommodation and having parking permits loverly cottage but will not book again

  • "The property itself is good and we enjoyed our stay however, car access to the property is very restricted."

    We found we could not safely access the property by car. The best thing to do is park on the pay and display car park about 150 metres away and move your luggage manually which we did. This should be noted. The property has no real safe nearby parking. You at at great risk of having your car damaged by other vehicles trying to pass or damaging it yourself trying to park.

  • "We felt really at home."

    Well-maintained property, clean and comfortable, with everything in excellent working order. It's right in the centre of our favourite part of Whitby, yet tucked away from traffic and crowds. The parking permit was a great bonus. Will definitely come again.

  • "Excellent place to explore Whitby from."

    Parking is a nightmare but that is Whitby for you! When I go to whitby I like to park my car, leave it be then explore and get back in the car at the end of the holiday. Pity train fare is not cheaper so car can be left at home.

  • "The advert stated you got a parking permit be which we did, however I assumed parking would be available outside the property."

    The advert did say first come first served but this was not explained fully as I had to find a parking space, eventually 10 minutes away. If we were staying as a couple this would have been fine but with a baby and everything you need to bring with you caused us a little stress. In particular, our holiday was cut short, as check out 10am, we had to pick up car while husband stayed with baby and dog, packed the car in order to vacate the property but we had no energy to try find another suitable space so ended up going home! Effectively we lost a day off the end of our holiday. Cottage was lovely, very clean, great location but not really big enough with a baby, pram, cot etc. They did provide cot, highchair and stairgate, for which we were grateful, and also biscuits were a nice touch. I feel parking situation spoilt it for us, Whitby is not great for big cars!

  • "Had a brilliant stay in this lovely cottage."

    It is in a great hidden away location but still very close to both the town and beach. It had everything we needed, was very clean and the decor is so lovely and welcoming. We would recommend this as a place to stay for sure and we will be returning.

  • "This was our second visit to the Store Rooms."

    We returned to enjoy the recent Fish and Ships festival in Whitby and the central location of the accommodation made it an ideal choice for us to experience the hustle and bustle of the harbour and then return to the peace and quiet of the cottage situated in a quiet area. The accommodation itself has everything you need and is clean and comfortable. We travelled by train as we knew that once we were there we didn't need to use the car and parking in Whitby can be difficult. We found the local buses an excellent way to get further afield. We would definitely recommend The Store Rooms and Whitby and hope to return ourselves very soon.

    Hot water for shower was nt so hot. Very steep stair but ok if you kept hold of banister Parking . No spaces as already taken. Needs a better chart indicator where to get parked. Ended up going to a private park and paid £8 per 24 hours. Very central,so ideal for walking the dog

  • "We reaĺly enjoyed our stay at the Store Rooms."

    It is very well located centrally in Whitby. The upstairs living area is very bright and airy and everywhere was very clean. As others have said parking nearby can be tricky but it is usually possible to find an appropriate space not too far away. The washing machine was not working properly during our visit but we are sure this will be sorted out by the owners. XXXXX Owner Response XXXX The owner is glad that you enjoyed your stay and has confirmed that the washing machine would not work due to the previous cycle that had not been allowed to finish completely. Therefore a new programme couldn't be started before the previous cycle was completed.

  • "Despite the hilly nature of Whitby the Store Room is located in a convenient, quiet cul-de-sac and everything the town has to offer is within a reasonably short walking distance."

    There are numerous paths and alleyways nearby which lead to all points of the compass and for those visiting Whitby for its famous fish and chips, a takeaway or restaurant is never more than a few minutes away, as are the panoramic views that Whitby offers. The Store Room is very comfortable, well equipped and an ideal base for 2 to 3 people but I can imagine parking may be problematic in high season as there was only ever one space available outside the cottage which required some manoeuvring to get into. An enjoyable stay.

  • "Cottage was comfortable and well lit."

    I particularly liked the velux windows upstairs. Upstairs toilet was an added bonus (not mentioned in the listings). Parking was tricky especially getting out of the narrow road. Bed was a little on the soft side. The reasons I would not rebook the property are that it was a Friday-Friday let which was inconvenient and the parking difficulties. .

The property

A fabulous semi-detached cottage, centrally located, yet tucked away in a quiet corner, in the popular seaside town of Whitby, Yorkshire.

The Store Rooms was converted from a former auction house and has been immaculately restored, now providing a wonderful hideaway for couples and friends wishing to enjoy the many attractions this charming town has to offer.

Beautifully furnished and decorated throughout, the cottage provides upside down accommodation, with a pretty double bedroom and a bathroom on the ground floor.

Upstairs is a spacious open plan living area with a sofa bed, with a pitched roof, quirky floor level windows and Velux windows giving a very light and airy feel to the room.

There is also a well-equipped kitchen with a fold-down dining table and sumptuous seating in which to sink into after a busy day exploring.

A two-minute walk brings you into the hub of this thriving historic town, with restaurants, pubs and independent shops all on the doorstep.

Wander around the quaint narrow streets, enjoy coffee and cakes in one of the many tea rooms, or enjoy a cocktail in a harbourside bar.

An absolute must are the renowned Whitby fish and chips, and a climb up the 199 steps is well-worth the effort for the panoramic views along the coastline.

The surrounding countryside of the North York Moors National Park is stunning and there are many drives along this dramatic stretch of heritage coastline.

A wonderful romantic cottage for a varied and interesting holiday.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £125.
